The Traitors fans will be kept on their toes trying to figure out who could be hoodwinking them when Danny Dyer dons the recognisable cloak for a parody of the show during Comic Relief.

Former EastEnders star Danny, who left the soap last year, has been confirmed as one of the stars joining the sketch.

The reality show’s host Claudia Winkleman will be taking part, as will Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and national treasure and Great British Bake Off judge Mary Berry.

The BBC has teased that Claudia, played by Vicar of Dibley’s Dawn, will assemble the celebrity Faithful and Traitors, with plenty of twists and turns surely in store.

A photo has been released of Danny ahead of it all, and if his facial expression is anything to go by, he’s going to be doing his best to play the game and keep everyone guessing if he is a Faithful or a Traitor.

Former contestants from the show will also take part, with fan favourites Maddy Smedley and Wilfred Webster on hand to offer up their theories.

Stephen Merchant and Rosie Jones appear as well.

Previously speaking about the sketch, Jennifer joked that agreeing to take part was the ‘worst day’ of her life and she had only signed up to meet Mary.

Dawn added that her reason for saying yes was to ‘show Claudia Winkleman the horror that awaits her in the mirror in 30 years’ time.’

First hitting screens in November, The Traitors followed 22 strangers as they were put through their paces to detect who among them might be being dishonest about their role in the game, which saw them all also work towards building up the prize pool.

It was eventually won by Aaron Evans, Meryl Williams and Hannah Byczkowski after they correctly identified Wilfred as a Traitor and the trio walked away with the £101,050 prize.

The second season was officially confirmed by the BBC last month, with Claudia returning as host.
